More Information on AMD Ryzen and Athlon Computer Processors

Many owners of popular computers are reporting that they experience stuttering problems when watching videos, listening to music, playing video games, and video conferencing.  In March of 2022, AMD acknowledged the issue and traced the problem to extended fTPM-related memory transactions in SPI flash memory (“SPIROM”) located on the motherboard. AMD further explained that systems running Windows 10 and 11 that enabled its fTPM subsystem would experience intermittent system stuttering. AMD’s immediate solution was reportedly to force consumers to pay $20 to $60 for new microchips, depending on the consumer’s motherboard make. Consumers were also required to install the hardware themselves.

The computers involved include:

  • HP
  • Lenovo
  • Razer
  • Dell
  • Alienware
  • Asus
  • MSI
  • Acer
  • Microsoft Surface
